Jennifer Pudney Needlepoint All things Kiwi
All Things Kiwi

This design contains a few of what I see as the typical New Zealand icons. A sheep; a black shearers singlet; Hokey Pokey icecream; a chocolate fish; a pair of jandals for summer wear; the pukeko or swamp hen; an orange roughy; the cabbage or Ti tree (which looks like something out of a Dr Suess book); the Kiwifruit; and of course, the Kiwi. The stars represent the Southern Cross constellation. And the clouds represent the Maori name for New Zealand (Aotaearoa – Land of the Long White Cloud)

Jennifer Pudney Needlepoint Cafe Girls
Cafe Girls

We all had a laugh at this design! One title we thought of was “Speech Bubbles”. And another idea we had was for a competition whereby people had to tell us what the conversation was about – the most imaginative won! Needless to say, the conversation degenerated from that point on until we were all on the floor in hysterics..

Jennifer Pudney Needlepoint Cat Nap
Cat Nap

She lay in the sun for just a minute or two.
The cat saw it's chance for a comfortable snooze.

Cloud Watcher

She lay in the meadow to watch the sky
Forming cats and dogs, and a hawk on the fly
And somewhere between, it now and then
she lost herself totally, forgetting the when!

Home is where the heart is
Home is where the heart is

Feeling 40 something, and restless – I up-rooted my family and shifted to Christchurch to spend some time with Tim's family.
As we left our Wellington home I felt a tremendous sadness, and a nervousness about where we were going. This design is in response to that need to have a place to put my things and nuture my family -so… to this house I bring my heart, which makes it home…

Jennifer Pudney Needlepoint No Worries
No Worries

This is my first design that shows a couple together as equal characters! I'm not sure what Freud would make of this missing component for so many years, and it's sudden appearance. The colours are a bit softer than my usual palette. This would be a great gift for the parents! Wedding anniversaries or retirement celebrations.

Jennifer Pudney Needlepoint Tempting Santa
Tempting Santa

Was the night before Christmas
And no one was there
So I hung up my stocking
But it looked a little bare
So I hung up a few more
And it just wasn't right
So I kept on going
All through the night
By the light of day
Oh what a sight

Congratulations – I couldn’t do it..

Jennifer Pudney Needlepoint The Swim
The Swim

The water was vaguely warm
The only sound, my own breathing
The little fish darted away and then back
looking at me.
The seaweed wobbled
just like my hair

Swimming in the lagoon:Samoa 2003. This is a really strong image that I took away with me – I would have had on a snorkle, but that is not such a pretty thing to embroider!
If I ever need a place to go in my head – where everything stands still, and all the noises stop, and there is no weight or pressure, then I use this.
